Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that Manchester United have so much strength in depth that some players have been left out of match day squads when they deserved to be included. United will be back in action on Wednesday when they travel down south to take on a resurgent Fulham, hoping to get back to winning ways after Sunday’s stalemate with Liverpool. A victory at Anfield would have seen Solskjaer’s side go six points clear of the reigning champions, yet now they could go into the match at Craven Cottage in third place if Manchester City are victorious against Aston Villa — following Leicester City’s win over Chelsea on Tuesday. All three points against Scott Parke’s side would see United retake top spot and the pressure is certainly on to get a result. Ahead of the game, Solskjaer has explained the dilemma he faces with his team selection due to the amount of options he now has all over the pitch.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said “It really feels like we’ve got the strength in depth, I have to leave some players even out of the squad when they deserve to be in the squad but it’s a good challenge and conundrum to have for the right reasons. You just have to take one game at a time because if you leave them out for one game then they might as well get a suspension for one game. There are a couple of games to go until the amnesty comes in [after 19 games], but it’s not in my thoughts. I’ve got to say I’ve been impressed. They’ve turned it around, I think they’re a club that is really well coached and well managed. Around about the time when the transfer window closed they made some shrewd, very good signings and you can see they’ve got a settled team. They’re hard to beat and hard to break down. They have some quick and clever players with individual quality and you can also see the organisation and the work they do on the training ground with Scott [Parker]. The coaches must be a high level.”
